Holy crap. Can't we let it go already? Who cares who is who else and what name is really someone else taking someone else's name who is attempting to cover up what could be seen as a futile attempt to besmear someone else who is also in the process of defending themselves from other attacks that are made by folks who may or may not be someone else altogether. I remember the old advice of just ignore the haters, who ever they may or may not be. This ongoing drama is driving me batshit. Folks out there (this also includes me from time to time) are taking this stuff WAY too seriously. If the apparent slander was coming from, say, a co-worker or a neighbor, yeah, get pissed off, no doubt. But this is an internet chat room. Offensive things get said occasionally and will probably get said about me after this, but I will not let it ruin my day or raise my blood pressure because I see this place as a pleasant diversion that can easily be turned off if and when if becomes unpleasant. I'm sorry to all the folks out there who feel that have been slighted, but please try and not take this place too seriously. If someone wants to call me a brainless prick, go ahead, it doesn't bug me because I don't look to this place for affirmation of who I am.

OK, sorry about that, but this is getting freakin' ridiculous. I'm not aiming this at any one person in particular; instead to any and all who have ever read a post and gotten pissed off to the point of feeling personal offense and the need to fire off a heated response.

I would normally be in total agreement, and I have attempted diligently to maintain a modicum of civility here. Unfortunately, there are lines that should never be crossed and subjects that should never be broached. When transgressions, of the aforementioned nature, occur; it is sometimes impossible to suppress the urge to retaliate. Sadly, such retaliation seldom brings satisfaction and usually leaves one questioning his on humanity.

I find myself in agreement with the brainless prick on this one. Well said.

Why apologize? You're fuckin-A right on the money. I just replied to yesterday's "hours of dead" post with "too much of everything is just EE-NUFF," but in the spirit of your sentiments, I will qualify that by saying there are exceptions to every rule.
